Summer Blues

With July Fourth right around the corner I always think about how I can decorate for a holiday with what I already own. I love these simple blue and white china plates. I buy them as I see them, with no plan in mind, normally costing a few dollars. I will keep an eye out for them at yard sales and antique shops as I get out and about this summer. There are collectors of all different types of blue and white china. I found this website called Lovers of Blue and White. It is really interesting to browse all of the patterns that have become popular through out the years. You could almost do a world history looking at all of the patterns and topics of transferware.

Enjoy getting ready for summer entertaining and be creative with what you have around you!
